Air-breathing battery can store electricity for months
Wind and solar power are increasingly popular sources for renewable energy. But intermittency issues keep them from connecting widely to the grid.
Optical blood-flow sensor among world's smallest for wearable devices
One of the smallest known optical blood-flow sensors, which measures the volume of blood flow in subcutaneous tissue.
24M is a spin-out of battery company A123 that has developed a semi-solid, flexible electrode structure for their Li-ion batteries. We recently interviewed President and CEO Throop Wilder.
New concept turns battery technology upside-down
A new approach to the design of a liquid battery, using a passive, gravity-fed arrangement similar to an old-fashioned hourglass, could offer great advantages due to the system's low cost and the simplicity of its design and operation.
New manufacturing approach slices lithium-ion battery cost in half
Reinventing how these batteries are made also improves their performance and recyclability.
KYOCERA joins imec's industrial affiliation program
imec and Kyocera Corporation have announced that Kyocera has joined imec's industrial affiliation program to advance next-generation crystalline silicon solar cells.

More power from bumps in the road
Printed electronics is used in several forms of energy harvesting, so we thought we would share this dramatic opportunity with you although it is not yet clear what technology is involved. A shock absorber that harnesses energy from small bumps in the road could save a company such as Wal-Mart $13 million a year in fuel costs by converting its fleet of trucks.
PV news roundup from the 33rd IEEE PV Event
Over the last three years significant developments have been made with efficiency of organic based PV cells.
